Who is this Angel Eyes, who seems invisible and invincible as he steals special weapons leaving behind dead people whom might identify him? No one in law enforcement, espionage, State Department, or Defense can explain how this villain knows where to go. Whether it is Massachusetts or Texas or elsewhere, somehow Angel Eyes knows, comes, and steals. Even more confusing is these state of the art weapons never seem to surface anywhere as if Angel Eyes destroyed them, but the CIA and FBI who have loosely collaborated on these cases have no proof beyond the disappearance and suspicious deaths.
THE CIA believes they know where Angel Eyes will strike next. They plan to finally end his successful pilfering of weapons. CIA operative Stephen Conway has the assignment to keep safe a prototype cloaking device that allows users to move while being seemingly invisible. However, others want this gadget too and the trap to capture the master thief unravels with several CIA agents dead, leaving Conway apparently by himself except for perhaps his girlfriend, if he can trust her, to confront Angel Eyes.
WORLD WITHOUT END is an action packed thriller filled with double and triple crosses that keep on coming at the reader. Though the premise seems stretched, the story line keeps the reader fully indulged wanting to know what next. The support cast is incredibly developed though the lead character seems a nit wimpy in comparison. Still fans of non-stop techno-thrillers will enjoy Chris Mooney?s fast paced tale.
